Florida Man Who Robbed Convenience Store Arrested After Leaving Behind His Debit Card
A Florida man who broke into a convenience store, and stole dog food and other items was arrested after police say he left his debit card with his name on it at the scene of the crime, Fox 35 Orlando reported.
The Flagler County Sheriff’s Office told the station that deputies responded to an alarm at a gas station early Sunday morning in Palm Coast, Florida, and found the front door of the business unlocked. After searching the store, deputies found a debit card with the name Lantz Kurtz sitting on the counter near a register.
Security camera footage showed the man entering the store from the back and stealing several items before unlocking the front door and walking out.
Kurtz, 21 was arrested and charged with armed burglary of a dwelling/structure and petit theft. He was released on a $10,000 bond.
“He must have really wanted those items to break into a closed convenience store to get them,” Sheriff Rick Staly said. “Leaving a debit card behind does not absolve you from theft or committing a burglary.”
Kurtz is alleged to have stolen dog food, antifreeze, cigarillos and an electronic tobacco device, according to the Sheriff’s Office.
